Rory Gallagher rocked, we spent many an evening as lads listening to his classic "Live in Europe" LP back in the day.

Ah British Blues Bands...there were many The Rolling Stones(Hell the name came from a Muddy Waters tune), The Animals, Fleetwood Mac, Savoy Brown, The Yardbirds, Manfred Mann(Not the F'n "Earth Band" the real "Manfreds"...one of the most overlooked band of "The British Invasion") and even The Beatles covered some American blues in their early days. Amazingly they turned a generation of white, American kids on to music that had been under their noses, but quite sadly hidden, for decades. It wold be hard to classify any of the British blues cover bands as "The Best" when there were so many virtually unknown black American "bluesmen" languishing in racial obscurity.
